Taye Taiwo regrets Milan snub

Taye Taiwo has revealed he is disappointed he has not been given a chance to prove himself at Italian giants AC Milan. Dynamo Kiev have completed the signing of the Nigeria defender on loan with a view to a permanent deal, which will cost them two million pounds should he impress.

“It was a dream to move to AC Milan but to be honest I never had the chance to show what I am capable of doing, but that is life,” Taiwo said in an interview.

“I know Milan are a big club but I am not a player who is happy to sit down and collect a salary without playing football.”

The Super Eagles left back also revealed he moved to Dynamo Kiev on loan so as to save his career after he also played on loan in the EPL with QPR last season.

“I chose to come to Dynamo Kiev because of the opportunity to play in the Champions League and also to experience a new life,” he said. “It was very important to consider my international career and I took this decision with that in mind.”

Taiwo has become the fourth Nigeria player at Dynamo Kiev after joining Brown Ideye, Lukman Haruna and Yusuf Ayila.
